my new job will get me into shape (or kill me first) I'll find out Monday when I start. I'll be working at Kal Tire Commercial division (changing commercial vehicle tires) 8 hrs a day, 5 days a week. What better exercise routine, and I'll get paid to do it
Good job on the job RD, I know that you were looking for a decent one!! There is one adage that I have always used, work is fine to help a person stay in shape for a while, but eventually, your body will get used to what it's doing and work will become just work!! WIll have next to no effect on ones ability to get into shape!!. My reason for thois analogy, well, I am a thermo-former. What that means is that my job involves left a lot of heavy Hot-tubs around, and working with a maasive oven all day. That oven, is always around 500 degrees F!!!! Also, I have to manipulate the sheet we use to form the hot tub, while it is at about 500 deg. as well!! We are basically doing an Aerobic workout all day!!! For the first while, I was doing good, and this was helping me, but as time went on, and the body adapted to the conditions I was putting it under, that job ceased to have an effect on being used as a workout!!! Now, 5 years later, I had found that I had actually fattened up, it didn't matter that I was sweating for 8 hrs a day! But now that I have begun my training again, I again feel better, and guess what, my job has become even easier!!! Which is a rather nice side effect!!
